In 'Luther for Armchair Theologians,¿ Dr. Stephen Paulson lays out the essentials of Martin Luther's thought in such a way that it is a joy to read! Paulson¿s words are expressive and concise, and his down to earth humor is perfectly complimented by the hilarious cartoons of Ron Hill, which are scattered throughout the book. ¿Luther for Armchair Theologians¿ is a must read for anyone who is curious about the life and message of Martin Luther, a man who stood firm, risking his life in order to proclaim what he believed. The radical Gospel message Luther preached is truly profound, and even today this Word continues to bring comfort to those who hear it.
